No water in mama’s barrel,
no water in Auntie Sisi’s bowl,
no water in the Tomsin’s tank.
No water anywhere.
Wan, tu, trii, four, five, sis, seben days of no water.
I don’t like bathing, but it has been seben days and I’m beginning to smell like shit.
Koku and Adjo eat only in the af’noon. Mama gives me food tu times a day.
I want to eat with Koku and Adjo but Mama said the food is not enough. It was not this bad weeks ago.
Dada said it is the economy.
He said that the economy is poor.
And gavment is not helping.
I don’t know who gavment is, but gavment is a bad bad person.
